well it ir really nice to hear from you guys. this week the work was pretty slow haha we are trying to try to find new investigators. and so it´s been pretty hard but asi es la vida. hahah it helps us to trust in God more when we have hard times. well i´m not really sure what to say about cameron except that i am so excitedfor him!! and that is so cool he´s going to the same mission as fox. too bad he won´t speak spanish but ohwell he´ll probablypick up on alittle bit. well i didn´t really think of something i could share with you guys this morning but then iremembered what happened with a menos activo we are teaching.he lost his hope when he realized that his wife and family were not on the same page en cuanto al evangelio. another example that happened too. in this case the brother was crying because his family didn´t want to listen. well it is really significant because we cannot reach the exaltation alone. we need eachother. like elder holand said, we are not in a race against each other, sino a race against sin. i know that families are so important and that if we are not united here on earth, we can not be united in heaven either. i know that we have a strong family but it is really sad to see families fall apart and to see grown men cry becasue of the difficulties that happenbecuse all of the members of the family do not want to live the gospel. well i know we have a strong family and i am so grateful we do. i guess if we feel like our family isgoing pretty well, we can dedicate more time to help other families that aren´t so strong. i know that helping others have a stronger will help us too. well that´s all i have to say for thisweek. i love you guys so much and i can´t wait until we live in the celestial kingdom together someday. until then, hasta la pasta jajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajajjja

sup brock.well to answer your question, the missionary schedule is really fixed and you can´t change it a lot. we get 30 minutes to exercise every morning at 6:30 and then we have an hour to get ready and eat breakfast and then at 8 in the morning we have to do our studying .its weird at first having such a fixed schedule, but it helps you use the time better because the time god gives us to serve wit hall our heart , might mind and soul is very short. well i´m glad you´re doing good and thanks for sharing yhour testimony.its very strong. let me know if you have anymore questions and i want to know how your workouts are going adios
